We drove into the high desert shortly after sunset and stopped for gas at the Morongo Valley Chevron.
The clouds were pretty, but looking east towards 29 Palms (which is where we were going, and where the moon was supposed to be rising) I noticed a lot of haze and cloud cover. At 8:30 PM, there was no moon in sight. Ditto about 9 PM, but then the clouds started to clear. I didn't get the classic moon-rising-over-the-mountain or Joshua tree silhouette shot, but some very nice cloud + moon shots, so overall pretty happy.
|"Moon Sandwich" - the clouds were picking up some interesting colors.|
